    Brian just noticed in your profile that your from Killin.You must have some great photo ops,we had a holiday in a cottage on the loch a few years ago. One of my bright ideas was to climb Ben Lawers ....the hard way ,just killed me and my daughter couldn't walk for 2 days after ,but what a view.

    I went for double padded, smooth nappa top and bottom and perforated sides with silver stitching to match the interior. Pretty similar to your last one but different stitching.

    Nice wheels.

    Not keen on the Alacantra, but like the perforated and Nappa. Not so sure about the three bands at the top either.

    I'm a bit of a traditionalist. I like understated as opposed to a little flashy. Cool and cultured.

    Personal opinions though, so do whatever you enjoy!

    But they appear to do a fantastic job.

    :)

    I know what your saying that's why I bought this one to cover ,I'll keep the original ,but I think I might go for something diffrent ,the three hoops at the top look a little plasticky .if they we're anodised maybe although the leather might look better in the flesh

    I'd go for the two leathers and maybe "M" coloured tri tone stitching. A little jazz but cool and refined.

    As I say they look very nice and I'm sure whatever you choose will be lovely.

    That's what we have in the 2.8 and that was the way I was going to go .But I'm feeling a little rebellious,not really into jazz, and I can honestly say cool and refined is not how I would be described

    i've met you and you're pretty cool!

    When you're dealing with the sheep I suspect refined is a million miles away.

    Whatever you do is fine, so do what pleases you.
